A black baseball star has shocked fans by posting a picture of himself with what looks like white skin. Fans have noted his not-so-subtle transformation since retiring from the big leagues in 2007 and were quick to let him know.


One user posted a series of Tweets of Sosa and his wife in the capital, saying:

"Five days until Sammy Sosa’s birthday… Here he is in London!"


Black baseball legend Sammy Sosa has caused a social media meltdown after he was spotted with even lighter skin.

Posing for a series of pictures in London, the 48-year-old is nearly unrecognizable when compared to his playing days with the Cubs when he had honey-brown skin.

In one of the photos, the former slugger is seen leaning against a street post. Another photo shows Sosa doing the “dab.”

The 48-year-old Dominican-born athlete made headlines due to his transformation in 2009.

Back in 2009, Sosa claimed:

"It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some.

It’s a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some. I’m not a racist, I live my life happily.

What happened was that I had been using the cream for a long time and that, combined with the bright TV lights, made my face look whiter than it really is. I don’t think I look like Michael Jackson."


Fans took to Twitter to share their shock.

"Sammy Sosa looks like the grandpa from the Munsters," said Jaron Montana.
